Title  Introduction to the Theory of Soft Matter : From Ideal Gases to Liquid Crystals 
Author(s)  Selinger, Jonathan V 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  X, 185 p. 78 illus., 69 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the theory of soft matter to students at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. It provides a basic introduction to theoretical physics as applied to soft matter, explaining the concepts of symmetry, broken symmetry, and order parameters; phases and phase transitions; meanfield theory; and the mathematics of variational calculus and tensors. It is written in an informal, conversational style, which is accessible to students from a diverse range of backgrounds. The book begins with a simple ???toy model??? to demonstrate the physical significance of free energy. It then introduces two standard theories of phase transitions???the Ising model for ferromagnetism and van der Waals theory of gases and liquids???and uses them to illustrate principles of statistical mechanics. From those examples, it moves on to discuss order, disorder, and broken symmetry in many states of matter, and to explain the theoretical methods that are used to model the phenomena. It concludes with a chapter on liquid crystals, which brings together all of these physical and mathematical concepts. The book is accompanied by a set of ???interactive figures,??? which allow online readers to change parameters and see what happens to a graph, some allow users to rotate a plot or other graphics in 3D, and some do both. These interactive figures help students to develop their intuition for the physical meaning of equations. This book will prepare advanced undergraduate or early graduate students to go into more advanced theoretical studies. It will also equip students going into experimental soft matter science to be fully conversant with the theoretical aspects and have effective collaborations with theorists

Title  Quantal Density Functional Theory 
Author(s)  Sahni, Viraht 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XIX, 413 p. 71 illus., 20 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book deals with quantal density functional theory (QDFT) which is a timedependent local effective potential theory of the electronic structure of matter. The treated timeindependent QDFT constitutes a special case. In the 2nd edition, the theory is extended to include the presence of external magnetostatic fields. The theory is a description of matter based on the ???quantal Newtonian??? first and second laws which is in terms of ???classical??? fields that pervade all space, and their quantal sources. The fields, which are explicitly defined, are separately representative of electron correlations due to the Pauli exclusion principle, Coulomb repulsion, correlationkinetic, correlationcurrentdensity, and correlationmagnetic effects. The book further describes Schr??dinger theory from the new physical perspective of fields and quantal sources. It also describes traditional HohenbergKohnSham DFT, and explains via QDFT the physics underlying the various energy functionals and functional derivatives of the traditional approach to electronic structure.

Title  Mathematics for the Physical Sciences 
Author(s)  Seaborn, James B 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2002. 
Description  XI, 245 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is intended to provide a mathematical bridge from a general physics course to intermediatelevel courses in classical mechanics, electricity and mag?? netism, and quantum mechanics. The book begins with a short review of a few topics that should be familiar to the student from a general physics course. These examples will be used throughout the rest of the book to provide physical con?? texts for introducing the mathematical applications. The next two chapters are devoted to making the student familiar with vector operations in algebra and cal?? culus. Students will have already become acquainted with vectors in the general physics course. The notion of magnetic flux provides a physical connection with the integral theorems of vector calculus. A very short chapter on complex num?? bers is sufficient to supply the needed background for the minor role played by complex numbers in the remainder of the text. Mathematical applications in in?? termediate and advanced undergraduate courses in physics are often in the form of ordinary or partial differential equations. Ordinary differential equations are introduced in Chapter 5. The ubiquitous simple harmonic oscillator is used to il?? lustrate the series method of solving an ordinary, linear, secondorder differential equation. The onedimensional, timedependent SchrOdinger equation provides an illus?? tration for solving a partial differential equation by the method of separation of variables in Chapter 6

Title  Spectral Methods in Chemistry and Physics : Applications to Kinetic Theory and Quantum Mechanics 
Author(s)  Shizgal, Bernard 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2015. 
Description  XVII, 415 p. 102 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a pedagogical presentation of the application of spectral and pseudospectral methods to kinetic theory and quantum mechanics. There are additional applications to astrophysics, engineering, biology and many other fields. The main objective of this book is to provide the basic concepts to enable the use of spectral and pseudospectral methods to solve problems in diverse fields of interest and to a wide audience. While spectral methods are generally based on Fourier Series or Chebychev polynomials, nonclassical polynomials and associated quadratures are used for many of the applications presented in the book. Fourier series methods are summarized with a discussion of the resolution of the Gibbs phenomenon. Classical and nonclassical quadratures are used for the evaluation of integrals in reaction dynamics including nuclear fusion, radial integrals in density functional theory, in elastic scattering theory and other applications. The subject matter includes the calculation of transport coefficients in gases and other gas dynamical problems based on spectral and pseudospectral solutions of the Boltzmann equation. Radiative transfer in astrophysics and atmospheric science, and applications to space physics are discussed.?? The relaxation of initial nonequilibrium distributions to equilibrium for several different systems is studied with the Boltzmann and FokkerPlanck equations. The eigenvalue spectra of the linear operators in the Boltzmann, FokkerPlanck and Schr??dinger equations are studied with spectral and pseudospectral methods based on nonclassical orthogonal polynomials. The numerical methods referred to as the Discrete Ordinate Method, Differential Quadrature, the Quadrature Discretization Method, the Discrete Variable Representation, the Lagrange Mesh Method, and others are discussed and compared. MATLAB codes are provided for most of the numerical results reported in the book

Title  Digital Simulation in Electrochemistry 
Author(s)  Britz, Dieter 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2005. 
Description  XIII, 338 p. 252 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book shows how to numerically solve the parabolic partial differential equations (pdes) encountered in electroanalytical chemistry. It does this in a didactic manner, by first introducing the basic equations to be solved and some model systems as text cases, for which solutions exist. Then it treats basic numerical approximation for derivatives and techniques for the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations, from which the more complicated methods for pdes can be derived. The major implicit methods are described in detail, and the handling of homogeneous chemical reactions, including coupled and nonlinear cases, is detailed. More advanced techniques are presented briefly, as well as some commercially available program packages. This third edition, still the only text on the subject, is structured more didactically then the previous editions. It brings the coverage of electrochemical digital simulation up to date, including many new techniques developed since the early 1990s. A number of example procedures and programs are made available as supplementary material in the online version of this book

Title  Granular Dynamics, Contact Mechanics and Particle System Simulations : A DEM study 
Author(s)  Thornton, Colin 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2015. 
Description  XIII, 195 p. 144 illus., 13 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is devoted to the Discrete Element Method (DEM) technique, a discontinuum modelling approach that takes into account the fact that granular materials are composed of discrete particles which interact with each other at the microscale level. This numerical simulation technique can be used both for dispersed systems in which the particleparticle interactions are collisional and compact systems of particles with multiple enduring contacts. The book provides an extensive and detailed explanation of the theoretical background of DEM. Contact mechanics theories for elastic, elasticplastic, adhesive elastic and adhesive elasticplastic particleparticle interactions are presented. Other contact force models are also discussed, including corrections to some of these models as described in the literature, and important areas of further research are identified. A key issue in DEM simulations is whether or not a code can reliably simulate the simplest of systems, namely the single particle oblique impact with a wall. This is discussed using the output obtained from the contact force models described earlier, which are compared for elastic and inelastic collisions.??In addition, further insight is provided for the impact of adhesive particles. The author then moves on to provide the results of selected DEM applications to agglomerate impacts,??fluidised beds and quasistatic deformation, demonstrating that the DEM technique can be used (i) to mimic experiments, (ii) explore parameter sweeps, including limiting values, or (iii) identify new, previously unknown, phenomena at the microscale. In the DEM applications the emphasis is on discovering new information that enhances our rational understanding of particle systems, which may be??more significant than developing a new continuum model that encompasses all microstructural aspects, which would most likely prove too complicated for practical implementation.??The book??will be of interest to academic and industrial researchers working in particle technology/process engineering and geomechanics, both experimentalists and theoreticians
